Every year since 2005, the Georgia Trust has published a list of endangered properties throughout the state that are worthy of preservation. This week, the 2017 list was released, including four sites around metro Atlanta. Gulp.
The list spans many types of buildings and vintages, ranging from the iconic Central Library of 1980 to the incredibly historic Gaines Hall, which has stood at Atlanta University Center since just after the Civil War.
While the list may evoke melancholy for preservationists, plans are already in place to stabilize two of the buildings, and with the help of the Georgia Trust, hopefully all 10 on the list can be saved, like many others from previous years.
